Alicia Keys Has Forgiven Lil Mama For Getting On Stage During During 2009 VMA Performance With Jay-Z

Alicia Keys revealed during a recent interview that she has forgiven Lil Mama for getting on stage during her performance of “Empire State of Mind” with Jay-Z at the 2009 VMA Awards.

Keys was asked about the incident recently on The Morning Hustle Show. When asked if he has forgiven Lil Mama, she says, “of course.” She admitted that she never even knew Mama was on the stage, and Keys thinks she was just feeling the record’s energy. 

“So umm, that was wild to me,” Keys said. “But I absolutely — it’s not even a statement. That was then. You know, she’s from New York, too. You know, I think she really felt the energy of the record, and she loved it, and she couldn’t hold herself back. Look, this is what my music does to people. What can we say?”

Following the infamous moment, Lil Mama became the butt of a lot of jokes. She previously said that she reached out to both Keys and Jay to apologize, and neither responded.

Hopefully, she sees this clip and knows it’s water under the bridge as far as Keys is concerned.
